THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 2016 www.italoamericano.org L'Italo-Americano 2 Continued to page 3 NEWS & FEATURES TOP STORIES PEOPLE EVENTS N estled in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley stand the histori- cal Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes of Bacigalupi Vineyards. Growers Charles and Helen Bacigalupi are internation- ally known after winning the 1976 Paris Tasting. Not only represents this a Californian success, but also an Italian-American. As Helen writes during our email exchange, Charles' family carries Italian heritage. "His family roots start with his great grandfather Natale Bacigalupi, who was born in 1861 in a small town in the province of Genoa, Italy in the region Liguria, called Cicagna. He came to the US in 1875 as a young boy and settled in San Francisco. Natale's last name was originally Bacigalupo but changed it to the plural spelling (Bacigalupi) once in California."
